Everyone knows that LED panel lights are a recommended replacement for the less efficient fluorescent panel lights, but have you made the switch yet?

Fluorescent panel lights are still used in businesses, offices and schools across the country, often due to the lower initial cost. However, LED panels have a longer lifespan of up to 50,000 hours and reduce power consumption by up to 60%, reducing the long-term costs significantly. The longer lifespan also saves on maintenance costs as they need changing much less often.

Not only is LED lighting up to 60% more energy efficient and more cost effective, but multiple studies have found that productivity and wellbeing improve with brighter, daylight lighting, which LED panel lighting provides. This makes LED panels a popular lighting solution for offices, hospitals, retail units and schools, as well as corridors and other areas in need of bright lighting.

LED panel lights can be placed into new buildings as well as retrofit and are like-for-like replacements for fluorescent tube and tray lighting, making installation quick and easy. For example, a 40W LED panel light can be used to replace 4 standard 18W T8 fluorescent tubes, which will instantly cut energy use by 32W, while still delivering a brighter light.
